Default Left Pivot (rally sign)

How do you go about training it? I've got some ideas, but I was wondering if someone else has something better.

I did a lot of perch work, a lot of hind end awareness and a lot of learning to stay stuck to my side. And since it's fun I do it all the time

But pretty much when I started I just did a lot of perch work and rewarding for hind end movement in the correct direction.

That's what I was thinking we'd do--any helpful videos or anything you'd like to recommend? :]

Perch work + making sure your dog understands moving backward and laterally while in heel. In a true left pivot the human is staying in place and "turning on a dinner plate" so the dog is not only pivoting but also backing in an arch to stay in position.

Perch work here too! This is something we've really been working on in lessons and stuff. Slow, but sure progress.

Lol, I know what a pivot is. I just wanted to have a game plan before I started working on it. :]

I don't do anything special. It's just a really tight Left Turn.

So, that's pretty much how I train it. For all manuevers to the left I have a special hand cue (with my right hand), and say "Get In", which means move your butt in.

All I have are some ones I've taken.

I started an alone pivot with Didgie and Traveler. Really gets that body movement down with the muscle memory without them trying to remember where to be in relation to you. Which I like

Didgie Pivot Alone

Traveler Pivot Alone

Didgie Pivot with Me

And then I think this is the best video (the first part of it anyways) of what I do with Traveler that I have. Pretty much I would just do this in small spaces a lot. It's what I almost always do to practice heeling, just do sidesteps, backwards and pivoting.

Pivots
